Opinion: I really enjoyed this unique portrayal of witches! This series did a fairly good job of introducing the supernatural world but I felt like it could have been a bit longer.

Art is very unique to this mangaka. It gives an old school vibe that is kind of sketchy but it’s still modern. Very sharp looking. The male lead is quite handsome and the heroine is stunning as she develops throughout the series.

Plot was interesting and unique. I predicted some stuff that actually didn’t happen which was pleasantly surprising. I think the series could have been a bit longer to have some more fun with the world but the ending is satisfying. Very cute sexy series about witches.

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: From the same mangaka of Midnight Secretary

Opinion: I really enjoyed this so far (1 volume) as I can’t really resist the recent Yakuza trend. I’m very excited to continue reading!

The art is my favourite part honestly. It reminds me so much of my favourite mangaka Izumi Kaneyoshi. It’s very unique and mature but still very feminine. I can’t resist the way she draws men or women.

The plot is very good I love the setup and the male lead is lovable. Unfortunately the heroine is kind of annoying. She is always running away scared waiting until the last minute to stand up for herself. It’s understandable the situation for her is weird but sometimes it’s a little grating.

Overall I really love the series and can’t get enough of the art of the male lead! Also this series is pretty dang good for smut.

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: Reminds me a lot of Dangerous Lover if you need something similar!
